Rudolph Won’t You Guide My Sleigh Tonight? | Lush Christmas 2018 Range

As you probably already know, I absolutely love it whenever Lush releases anything new. That’s why when I had heard that they had released their Christmas 2018 range, I obviously had to pop down to my local Lush store and check everything out. Well after giving everything a good sniff, I eventually picked up the Perle De Sel Bath Bomb, a bottle of the Cinders Shower Gel, a tub of the Rudolph Jelly Mask, and a block of the Satsuma Soap, and I thought that I would tell you what I thought of them.

Here’s what Lush say about all four festive products.

The Perle De Sel Bath Bomb.

Let the Water roll gently over your Skin like the Waves that form the Pearls of Salt and emerge with softened Skin. Hand pressed and draped in golden Salt, Perle De Sel isn’t just any Christmas Bath Bomb, it’s the epitome of decadence and class; a Wave of elegance. Evocative, yet delicate Rose Absolute balances and calms, while floral Cassie Absolute swirls in the Water, relaxing, soothing, and pampering.

Bath time is your moment, relax and enjoy it! You deserve this.

The Cinders Shower Gel.

Gather ’round and let us tell you a story.

Not of Princesses and Princes, nor of extravagant parties and lost footwear, but of a silky, conditioning Gown of Pumpkin Seed Oil and Aloe Vera Extract.

When midnight nears and you can feel the magic waning, Shower down with sunset-coloured washes of Almond Essential Oil to sweep worries away.

Balls are overrated anyway; the party’s in your Shower with this sweet and spicy concoction of Brazilian Orange Oil, Ginger, Nutmeg and Allspice Powder and what better way to keep the magic alive than with skin-softening Maple Syrup?

So when you’re done lathering up and it’s time to leave the bathroom, don’t forget to live happily ever after!

The Rudolph Jelly Mask.

Rein supreme and take flight with Tangerine that illuminates like a starry Sky. Sleigh excess Oils with absorbent Fuller’s Earth and Rhassoul Mud. Meadowsweet and Orange Peel Infusion tones whilst Carrageenan Extract softens arctic Skin. Sing merrily on high and let brightening Tangerine and Brazilian Orange Oils give you a glow bright enough to light up the North Pole.

The Satsuma Soap.

Orange you glad for this zesty little Soap? Pop this Satsuma in the toe of a festive Sock or Santa Sack and treat someone special to an orangey lather this Christmas. This little stocking filler is full of Tangerine and Brazilian Orange Oils – a refreshing wake up call for your Skin while uplifting Bergamot Oil keeps you feeling zesty and fresh. When you’ve filled up on too much Candy and Chocolate, grab yourself a juicy easy peeler and lather up to brighten and refresh your skin.

The Perle De Sel Bath Bomb.

It’s scent.

I absolutely loved it’s scent, as even though it contained Coarse Sea Salt, African Salt Pearls, Cassie Absolute, Rose Absolute, and Benzoin Resinoid, I thought that it had a delicious sweet and creamy yet ever so slightly floral Marzipan scent to it that kind of reminded me of their Snowcake Soap.

What it did when I used it.

I really liked what this did when I used it, as once it hit the water, it fizzed and hissed for a couple of seconds before it released streams of beautiful Blue and silver all over the surface of the water that eventually blended together to turn my Bath a beautiful shimmering Sea Blue colour.

It’s results.

I really liked it’s results, as not only did this leave my Skin feeling incredibly silky soft and smooth because of all the Sea Salt, but it also left it smelling of delicious sweet and creamy yet ever so slightly floral Marzipan for hours after I had used it.

The Cinders Shower Gel.

It’s scent.

I really liked it’s scent, as even though it contained Fine Sea Salt, Organic Pumpkin Seed Oil, Maple Syrup, Kaolin, Aloe Vera Extract, Almond Essential Oil, Brazilian Orange Oil, Cinnamon Leaf Oil, Fair Trade Organic Cinnamon Powder, Ginger Powder, Nutmeg Powder, Allspice Powder, and Clove Powder, I thought that it had a sweet and fruity yet ever so slightly spicy Almond scent to it that kind of reminded me of if they had blended Amaretto with Cherry Coke.

It’s consistency.

I really liked it’s consistency, as even though it was called a Shower Gel, I thought that it felt really thin and watery, and was more like a thin and watery Body Oil rather than a thick and balmy Shower Gel.

What it did when I used it.

I really liked what this did when I used it, as once I had started to massage a little bit of it into my Skin, it turned from a thin and watery Body Oil into a thick and creamy yet ever so slightly frothy Shower Gel that spread really easily across my Body.

It’s results.

I really liked it’s results, as not only did this leave my Skin feeling incredibly squeaky clean, silky soft and moisturised, but it also left it smelling of delicious sweet and fruity yet ever so slightly spicy Almond for hours after I had used it.

It’s packaging.

I really liked it’s packaging, as this came in a tall cylindrical Plastic Bottle with a clickable Lid that looked beautiful sat on my Beauty Shelves.

It’s scent.

I really liked it’s scent ,as even though it contained Medowsweet and Orange Peel Infusion, Kaolin, Fresh Orange Juice, Cocoa Powder, Fullers Earth, Rhassoul Mud, Carrageenan Extract, Tangerine Oil, Brazilian Orange Oil, Vanilla Absolute, and Cocoa Absolute, I thought that it had a gorgeous sweet yet ever so slightly earthy Chocolatey scent to it that kind of reminded me of Chocolate Moose.

It’s consistency.

I wasn’t really a massive fan of it’s consistency, as even though it was called a Jelly Mask, I thought that it felt extremely hard and rubbery, and was more like a massive block of Rubber rather than a soft and bouncy block of Jelly.  .

What it did when I used it.

I really liked what this did when I used it, as once I had started to massage a little bit of it into my Skin, it turned from an extremely hard and rubbery block of Rubber into a thick and balmy Facial Serum that spread really easily across my Face.

It’s results.

I absolutely loved it’s results, as not only did this leave my Skin feeling incredibly matte, toned, soft and moisturised, but it also left it looking really glowing and radiant for hours after I had used it.

The Satsuma Soap.

It’s scent.

I really liked it’s scent, as even though it contained Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter, Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Organic Caster Oil, Brazilian Orange Oil, Tangerine Oil, Bergamot Oil, and Peach Kernel Oil, I thought that it had a delicious fresh and zesty yet ever so slightly sour Orange scent to it that kind of reminded me of the smell you get whenever you peel an Orange.

What it did when I used it.

I really liked what this did when I used it, as once I had ran it under some running Water and had started to massage it between my Hands, it created a gorgeous thick and creamy lather that felt more like a loose and thin Hand Cream rather than a block of Soap. I wasn’t really a massive fan of it’s colour though, as with it being a very bright Orange I found that it left little puddles of Orange all over my Windowsill whenever I used it.

It’s results.

I absolutely loved it’s results, as not only did this leave my Hands feeling incredibly squeaky clean, silky soft and moisturised, but it also left them smelling of delicious fresh and zesty yet ever so slightly sour Orange for hours after I had used it.

My overall thoughts.

Overall I would have to rate the Lush Perle De Sel Bath Bomb a nine point five out of ten, the Lush Cinders Shower Gel a nine out of ten, the Lush Rudolph Jelly Mask a seven out of ten, and the Lush Satsuma Soap an eight out of ten. I really liked the Lush Perle De Sel Bath Bomb, as I absolutely loved it’s delicious sweet and creamy yet ever so slightly floral Marzipan scent, what it did when I used it, and it’s results, but I did think that it dissolved just a little bit too quickly when I used it. I really liked the Lush Cinders Shower Gel, as I absolutely loved it’s delicious sweet and fruity yet ever so slightly spicy Almond scent, it’s consistency, what it did when I used it, it’s results, and it’s packaging, but I would have just preferred it to have actually smelt a little bit more like the Cinders Bath Bomb that they released a couple of years ago. I really liked the Lush Rudolph Jelly Mask, as I absolutely loved it’s delicious sweet yet ever so slightly earthy chocolatey scent, what it did when I used it, and it’s results, but given that it contained three different types of Orange Oil I would have love to have actually been able to smell one of them. I really liked the Lush Satsuma Soap, as I really liked it’s fresh and zesty yet ever so slightly sour Orange scent, what it did when I used it, and it’s results, but I just didn’t like that it left little Orange puddles all over my Windowsill whenever I used it.
